Something that I didn’t expect is happening, and I am loving it.
My husband, second shooter, and partner in crime gets kudos, accolades even, at weddings. I hear things like:
“I couldn’t have spent those 30 minutes waiting with anyone better than you, John. Thank you.” from a groom. And at the wedding prior to that one after the bride, microphone in hand, made a toast to her parents and bridesmaids, she proceeded to say: “and John, you rock!”. Haha!
The truth is, while I develop these amazing relationships with brides, at the wedding I am so focused in getting every shot, every moment, that John steps in to offer emergency assistance, bond with the couple, offer emotional support, and throw in the occasional, totally necessary humor to lighten a tough situation.
He doesn’t want to be a full-time photographer, and hates it if I treat him like one. But he supports me and shares in this dream that I am living; and for being my rock and right hand I am forever grateful.
Ana is right, my husband rocks!
